Language Learning Hub - Stellenbosch University Language Centre

Language Learning Hub

Become multilingual: learn Afrikaans, isiXhosa or English.

If you want a fun and accommodating space to learn or improve your Afrikaans, isiXhosa or English, Stellenbosch University Language Learning Hub is the perfect place for your language learning journey.

One of our main aims is to support the multilingual aspirations of individuals who don’t currently benefit from Afrikaans, isiXhosa and English language learning opportunities within existing structures at Stellenbosch University (SU) or elsewhere.

Our approach blends interactive, practical and creative learning, both face-to-face and online.

We also offer tandem learning and film and culture evenings to create various learning opportunities outside of standard learning spaces.

We believe that language and culture can’t be separated and that through language learning, you learn to respect and appreciate the culture of a specific language. That’s why our Language Centre courses focus on more than just learning vocabulary and structure – we learn about each other.
